The 13 Most Surprising Producer Credits in Movies

Sure producers accept the award when a movie wins Best Picture at the Oscars and get to say awesome things like "I'll make you a star, kid!," but what the hell does a producer actually do?

Well, the answer is sometimes everything from coordinating the script's development, financing and hiring the film's director ... and sometimes doing little beyond having a famous name and giving a thumbs-up at the movie's premiere. However, we're sure the following famous folks, who have had surprising producer credits on a variety of flicks, were more hands-on types when it came to getting these 13 movies made. Get More »

The 9 Most Dramatic Bastardizations of Our Childhoods (in Movies)

Jack the Giant Killer Warner Bros.

This week sees the release of Bryan Singer's "Jack the Giant Slayer," which has survived a long delay, conversion to 3-D, and a retitling  (Jack was originally a "Giant Killer"), but now must face its biggest trial by fire: The Audience.

The rather old-fashioned children's adventure feel of "Jack" is going to feel rather old-hat in comparison to the flurry of fairy tale films that film-goers have been bludgeoned with in recent years, mostly because it doesn't offer much of an ironic or modernized spin on the fable.

Maybe that's a good thing?

Let's take a look back at some past films that really took our childhood favorites in edgier, sexier directions. Get More »

Red Riding IN THE Hood

NextMovie

"Boyz N the Hood." "Don't Be a Menace in South Central While Drinking Your Juice in the Hood." "Tales from the Hood."

"The Hood" is a classic, storied setting in American cinema, thus we have to admit we were disappointed upon watching the teen-targeted thriller "Red Riding Hood" (now on DVD and Blu-ray) and discovering it did not actually place there.

So we made our own version. Meet "Red Riding IN THE Hood." Get More »

My, What Big 'Red Riding Hood' Blu-rays We Have

"Red Riding Hood" Blu-ray
Warner Bros.

That big bad wolf sure knows how to get around. First he huffed and puffed and blew down the house on those three little pigs and then he went and terrorized Little Red Riding Hood and her poor grandmother. Effective, sure, but kind of inefficient. So we thought we'd help him save some time by combining his efforts.

And when you see the three little "Red Riding Hood" Blu-rays we're giving away, it might blow your mind down.

Our latest giveaway features not just one, but three copies of Catherine Hardwicke's edgy reworking of the "Red Riding Hood" legend. You know, the one that stars the not-so-little Amanda Seyfried as the girl in the red hood and Max Irons and Shiloh Fernandez as two hunky love interests who may or may not be big and bad in their spare time? Yeah, it's pretty awesome stuff. Get More »

But, NextMovie, what great prizes you have!

Fairy tales rarely get more exciting than the combination of Amanda Seyfried and Shiloh Fernandez in "Red Riding Hood."

With "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn" not hitting theaters for another eight months, this movie, directed by the first "Twilight" helmer, Catherine Hardwicke," is like a trip to the spa -- so soothing and calming to our massive anticipation.

Needless to say, we're stoked for this sexy-yet-scary Gothic take on the classic story, so we're celebrating the best way we know how. No, we haven't purchased a scarlet poncho (yet - don't put it past us) -- we're giving away a slew of wolf-friendly goodies. They may or may not include a hoodie with red lining... Get More »

Next Factor: Shiloh Fernandez

Had there been just a slight shift in the sciences, Shiloh Fernandez would've already been a mega-star by now, obsessed over by millions of adoring fans. The California native was thisclose to playing Edward Cullen in "The Twilight Saga," but didn't find strong chemistry with potential co-star Kristen Stewart, telling NextMovie the two "didn't mesh up."

That's ancient history now, as Fernandez gets a new chance to shine in a cool new spin on a classic fairytale, "Red Riding Hood." And the chance comes courtesy of original "Twilight" director Catherine Hardwicke, who was obviously taken with R.Pattz's runner-up during their first go-round. Get More »
